After its complete redesign for 2017, the Chevrolet Cruze brought into the 2018 model year without any changes. With this new look still very new, we anticipate no big changes when the 2019 Cruze hits showrooms.
As a carryover, we expect the car’s look to be practically identical to the current model, which features a little sharper styling compared to the somewhat boring previous generation. Though we anticipate no huge design changes, there might be a couple of little updates to the offered colors, which is common during model year changeovers.
The Cruze’s interior likewise went through a total renovate in 2017, generating a more upscale feel and look, more convenience, and additional technology. Like the exterior, we expect this all to rollover in 2019, but there might be some small tweaks to its colors and products, and some moving around of requirement and optional features.
In the powertrain department, we anticipate absolutely nothing brand-new. If this proves precise, search for the 2019 Cruze to come with a basic turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that produces 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.
Buyers trying to find improved fuel economy will still have the optional 1.6-liter diesel motor that produces 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come basic with a six-speed manual transmission. The optional automatic transmissions vary, as the gasoline model uses a six-speed automobile, while the diesel has a nine-speed system.
The new-generation Cruze has yet to go through total IIHS security screening, but it has actually completed 2 crash tests– moderate overlap front and side– and it got “Good” rankings in both. Unfortunately, since the Cruze lacks automatic emergency braking, it gets just a “Basic” ranking in the front-crash avoidance test, which keeps it from the conversation for Top Safety Pick classification. This ought to all remain the exact same in 2019.
Though there is no official release date for the 2019 Cruze, we anticipate to see it in display rooms in the summer of 2018. Given there are no changes on the docket, we likewise anticipate rates to stay much like the 2018 Cruze’s MSRP variety of $19,400 to $26,795 (location charges consisted of).
